Amakye Dede moved to Nigeria, where he had his hit ‘Jealousy Go Shame’. He then formed his own band, the Apollo High Kings, in 1980.

He dominated the highlife scene in the 1980s and 1990s and has continued to have hit songs in the 21st century. With over 30 albums, Amakye Dede has headlined so many concerts locally and internationally.
